What is the invictus games sydney peace project?
In the lead up to the opening of Invictus Games, we have a unique opportunity through a partnership with Invictus Games Education Team & The National Peace Project to engage school aged young people right around the Australia to raise awareness for The Games and for the National Peace Project in November.
On Thursday 18 October, two days before The Games begin, one hundred young people will gather in an iconic location in Sydney for this special Peace Project. It will be live streamed into connected classrooms across the country and lIve on Facebook as young people join together in song and engage online with Invictus Participants/Ambassadors/Service men and women.
Songs: In order to make it easy for schools to be involved, only the choruses of the songs were learnt . Practiced the songs beforehand or joined in the choruses on the day. (We will had soloists and small groups sing the verses and encouraged the students to join in the choruses to keep it simple. Even if you don't get to practice any of the songs, the choruses are easy enough to pick up on the day.)
The red cross emblem is reproduced with consent of the Minister for Defence under the Geneva Conventions Act 1957. In armed conflict, the red cross, red crescent and red crystal mean 'don't shoot!’ Misuse of the emblem in peacetime diminishes its protective power when it is most needed: in times of war and is a crime. You can help by avoiding (and reporting) misuse of the emblem in Australia. Download the Emblem App https://redcross.org.au/TheEmblemApp to report any misuses you see, or email email@example.com .
